The Vampire Diaries spinoff, The Originals, is set to debut on Thursday October 3rd.
From what we know, there's more than one reason to tune in for the second episode, which will air Tuesday October 8th, just before the season 9 premiere of Supernatural. The new photo, shows Klaus (Joseph Morgan) & Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) still have a very complicated relationship, no matter what period of time they happen to be trapped in at the time.
In the episode "House Of The Rising Son", Rebekah arrives in New Orleans at the insistence of Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and it seems that everyone is worried that Klaus is up to no good. When is Klaus ever not up to any good? Klaus is busy scheming against Marcel in order to gain control of the French Quarter in the present. Of course, Marcel has his own plan.
The episode synopsis says: "After a run in with Marcel, Rebekah is reminded of all the anger and disappointment Klaus has caused her throughout the years.” I would be too if I was her. The Originals executive producer Julie Plec has been said to be naming some pretty pricey FX shots, perhaps as an example of something she might want to tweak in the spin-off series. She recently told Entertainment Weekly in the Fall Preview issue, "In general, you want to learn from past mistakes and make things simpler or easier to execute. We can create our new version of it. If someone on Twitter starts screaming about how it doesn't match, then okay. You don't want to get those comments, but most people won't notice."
The series premiere of The Originals will air Tuesday, October 3rd on the CW network.
